Some numerical investigations of large scale continental deformation.

Abstract:

The theory of plate tectonics cannot adequately account for the deformation of the continents: within the oceanic portions of the plates seismic deformation is seen to occur in belts only a few tens of kilometres wide, but seismic, topographic, gravity and field geology data all indicate that the continents are deforming (and have deformed for most of geological time) in zones that are hundreds to thousands of kilometres wide. Qualitatively, this difference in style of deformation may be attr...
